It could be a combination of things... it could be a loose earth lead from your ignitor pack or your timing could be out, check your key way that will be in the centre part of the magneto.. too see if its ok will need to remove the magneto to see the key way if its brocken it will not fire up and sometimes will back frie through carb if its bad enough, also check your gap between the ignitor pack and magneto should be around the .20 too .25mm by feeler guage...

Mower will not start after changing the battery out and checking all connectioncs

U could try to use some starting fluid spray into carb and have someone crank it right away But first do you have fresh gas in the tractor if not I would drain and fill tank with fresh gas. Also I always change my spark plugs at the beginning of the season,

Remove the center dust caps from the rear axles, start the tractor up and put it in gear and observe the axles, if one of them is spinning freely inside the wheel, you have lost the 1/4" square key that pins the wheel to the axle. Replace the key and you can go back to mowing. Hope this helped Tim

Hot battery,will not turn engine every time,keep bumping key and will start turning engine seems like trying to start with too much compresion

If your unit has OHV engine you need to check the intake and exhaust valve gap. Call your local repair shop to get numbers and check this website out. Go to they have a video for just what you are looking for. Good Luck...
